A pair of alleged Muni phone thieves were arrested Thursday, after witnesses and police managed to chase the suspects down.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, the incident began on a Muni bus passing through the intersection of 15th Avenue and Taraval Street at 9:15 a.m. Thursday.
Police say that two 15-year-old males were on the bus, along with a 39-year-old woman. Suddenly, the teens "grabbed [the victim's] phone from her hand and fled" off the bus, police say.
The victim and several witnesses gave chase, police say, running after the suspects. Meanwhile, police officers were summoned to the scene, where they tracked down the suspects.
The phone was recovered from the teens, police say. Both were taken into custody, and were booked into San Francisco Juvenile Hall.
